Regis College, a NEC member, recently held its’ Let it Shine Gala to raise money for Regis students and honor Century Bank founder and chairman Marshall M. Sloane.
Over 300 people gathered for the event at the Boston Park Plaza to support a scholarship fund and honor Sloane. Sloane, 91, was awarded the Shining Example Award in recognition of his decades of charitable work throughout the Greater Boston area. The gala also raised $1 million in scholarships for Regis students by auctioning off items such as Patriots tickets and football jerseys signed by Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. In attendance were educators, business leaders and the former ambassador to Portugal.
“We are once again honored by the tremendous generosity of our alumni and dedicated supporters who believe in the mission of our great university to provide the education critical to the success of young people today,” said Regis President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “Marshall is a leading example of the type of support we are grateful to receive every day, and through his generosity, he has made a difference in the lives of thousands of young people.”
The New England Council congratulates Regis College on a successful event and wishes them luck in the future. Read more in the Boston Globe and in the Regis press release.
